Pink Grapefruit Gin and Apricot Brandy Is the Cocktail Combination You Need to Try

If your cocktail game has gone stale and you fancy jazzing things up in a big way then we’ve got just the tonic (so to speak).

Dunnet Bay Distillers, who make Rock Rose Gin, have a large portfolio of gins and it seems the wide variety has inspired their cocktail recipe-making skills.

The Apricot Blossom is a gin and brandy combo that also contains a delicious dollop of apricot jam for good measure.

Using the gorgeous Pink Grapefruit Old Tom Gin as a base, this cocktail is something a little different; the fruity combination of apricot and pink grapefruit is perfect for summer sipping.

  • 50ml Pink Grapefruit Old Tom Gin
  • 25ml apricot brandy
